When I started this blog a couple of months ago, I wanted to start at the center of who I was and work out. Sometimes that has been how things have flowed, and other times, it has not worked out that way. Such is life. The good and the bad have knocked me off course a couple of times.


I have yet to feature my youngest son or my husband. They are the ones who are constantly around me, but I still haven’t found the right inspiration to truly share them with my ever-expanding world.

My youngest son is shy, but there is so much to him, even if he doesn’t show it to everyone. He is an artist and an author, a hunter and an aspiring chef. I’m getting inspired already. My husband on the other hand, is so many things I just don’t know where to begin. You’ll see them soon.

Other things close to my heart are writing, traveling, hiking/kayaking - anything outdoors really, and photography, of course. We’ve spent much of the past two summers traveling to waterfalls, mountain ranges and lakes. What an enchanting life we really live.

Recently, we spent a whole week in a cabin on Lake Glenville with my husband’s family.
There was tubing, kayaking, hiking, gem mining, fishing, and best of all – waterfall viewing. This area of NC has literally hundreds of waterfalls, three of them on the Lake we stayed on.


My youngest son and I hiked almost every weekend last summer. All the photos we took inspired my original photoblog. Click here to take a peak at all our adventures.

I always like to read about other people's children. Your pride in your son shines through. He looks to be about the age when things "turn". I would give anything to have my little sweetie back again...enjoy him!!

What a great family, and a fabulous place to enjoy the outdoors, nature, and photography. Enjoy your time together...they grow so fast!

I always enjoy reading your posts. Sometimes it is hard to know why one blogs. I started after my Dad died - I just had so much I needed to say. Lately I feel like I am not sure why I do it, but I keep doing it. Perhaps one day I will wake up and that will be it - there will be another chapter elsewhere to pursue.
